The easy-peasy ones: 3 Ingredient Pancakes
Want to keep it simple this year? These fuss-free banana pancakes are a joy to make and a joy to eat, too. Top with whatever you like; we’ve chosen blueberries and more bananas to continue the fruity theme, but they’d be delicious with mixed berries, nuts and seeds. Here’s how to make them:
- 2-3 ripe bananas
- 2 eggs
- Maple Syrup
- Butter, for frying
- Whisk together 2-3 (200g) mashed ripe bananas with 2 eggs to make a batter.
- Stir in 25g blueberries, saving 25g to serve.
- Gently fry 3 tbsp of batter in hot butter for 30 secs – 1 min each side.
- Stack up the pancakes and top with blueberries, half a sliced banana and maple syrup
